Welcome to Château Clinet, Pomerol
Château CLINET is one of the most prestigious estates of the Pomerol wine region, set amongst the finest parcels of this well-known plateau.
Located 40km to the east of Bordeaux, on the right bank of the Garonne River, its gravelly clay soil makes Pomerol the terroir of the finest Merlots in the world. The natural resources required to produce the exceptional quality of our grapes, simply cannot be reproduced anywhere else on earth.
Successive generations of owners have been producing world-renowned wines here for centuries and, since 1998, it has been the duty and privilege of the Laborde family to perpetuate the highest possible standards, observing the traditions of a strict cultural approach.
History of CLINET
The first traces of viticulture on the land that today belongs to Château Clinet date back to the 17th century, with successive generations handing down ownership and management of the Estate until its eventual purchase by the Laborde family in 1998.
Read more about the history of CLINET from its first appearance on the Belleyme map of 1785 to the critically acclaimed winery it has become today.
Our natural advantage
Set upon the well-known gravel terraces of Gunz, Mother Nature and the elements conspire in our favour, enabling Château CLINET vines to sink their roots 5 metres down into rich fertile soil, gently warmed by naturally occurring volcanic stones.
